31 DAYS of "GREATER GOOD" ~ DAY 17

TODAY'S PROJECT at "Greater Good" is perfect for October, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month ... this also hit close to home many years ago now (thank God!) for my sister (but glad to report it's been in remission for that many years also) ... So this is a very important cause/campaign/project for the many personal family members that have gone through discovering they had cancer (of some kind) and for the many loved ones that did not survive, I dedicate this CLICK today ... 

The Breast Cancer Site

"Transport 20 Women in Need to Breast Cancer Treatment"

"The cost of cancer treatment is daunting, and simply being insured isn't always enough. Your click helps cover the cost of transportation to and from treatments for women in need. This is a vital step in the fight against breast cancer."

Click today to help a patient get the care she needs! 80,000 clicks needed.

"Tragically, low-income and under-insured women are often forced to choose between surviving cancer and surviving financially. Even when treatment is available, many rural and urban cancer patients have very limited resources, and transportation is often beyond their budget. This results in missed appointments, disease progression and premature death."...


I added that last statement because I find this appalling and totally unacceptable that anyone would be unable to get what is needed ... whatever, that may be from transportation to insurance to financial assistance. No one should be forced to choose between these. Please be sure to go HERE and CLICK

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
